After seeing countless of their countrymen having
difficulties in looking for an opening or applying
as a seaman, young Filipino entrepreneur, Joel
Nilo and Ferdinand Nilo, became increasingly concerned
for their fellow countrymen’s plight.
Always trying to find a way to assist fellow
Filipinos, Joel and Ferdinand saw a vision.
They knew their endeavor is a huge undertaking,
so they decided to call on the needs of some
friends, who, along with them, are dedicated
to the cause of helping fellow Filipinos. Hence,
Pinoyseaman.com began to take shape and was
formed. “Sometimes, I would see long queues
in Luneta, Filipinos would wait for a whole
day just to get a chance to apply for a job
as a seaman. There are many from the province
who would purposely rent an apartment in the
Luneta area just to be able to apply for a job.
They would be out there in the searing heat,
in the pouring rain,”say Ferdinand.
There are only a few ads available in the newspapers
for a seaman. This means there are too many
already applying for a job that companies sometimes
shy away in placing ads. Shipping companies
don’t want to be inundated with long lines
of applicants for only a handful of openings.
This is where Pinoyseaman.com enters the picture.
This site, not only facilitates easier application
for people around the country, but it also filters
and segregates their application, tailored to
the specific needs of the employer.
Pinoyseaman.com serves a dual purpose. “It
serves as a cheaper, faster, more reliable and
convenient way for seamen around the country
to apply for different positions with different
companies. It also serves as a cost-effective,
tailored vehicle for shipping companies in facilitating
their human resource needs,” says Joel.
Pinoyseaman.com will only forward applications
who meet the requirements and needs of the shipping
company. This way, company executives don’t
waste time in sifting through countless resumes
and applications which are not suitable for
Pinoyseaman.com, life is made easier.
